Jason has really become a pro at planning outings for our family. He finds places nearby for us to go that are fun, active, usually educational, and often outdoors. Before having Connor, I never imagined that lugging two children around in the hot sun all day would be enjoyable, but really it was a great day. There were hardly any meltdowns, and London, as usual, smiled nearly the entire time.
Connor loves trains, and this was no exception. The lull of the train even put him to sleep around naptime, but he was ready to go once we got off to explore the coal mining town. We had a picnic in the grass, walked across a bridge, London napped in the shade, and Connor and Jason explored the paths.
After lunch at an adorable little diner where I had the best Oreo ice cream dessert, we headed to Cumberland Falls. Connor was in awe (see the videos at the bottom for proof). Connor asked so many questions, and although I do not always know the answers, I love that he is inquisitive and curious about the world around him. I also love that he loves the outdoors.
I'm hoping we have many more fun summer days like this one ahead!
